My experience at this school has put me through 3 different mental hospitals because I tried to end my life on account of the utter chaos and anarchy that takes place at this school on a daily basis.

My experience has never been good after having three kids in this school. It is overcrowded, filled with disrespectful kids, there are so many fights every day, some of the teachers are just as bad as the kids and there is no COMMUNICATION with the parents!!!!!!!

This school is terrible. The principal says they have a zero tolerance policy on bullying but I know that on more than one occasion that is not true. The principal wants to be kept in "the loop" about what's going on but then when you do tell her she acts like it's not a big deal! Just because a student has never been in trouble it's ok to think that my child caused it! I have nothing positive to say about this school. I agree with the other parent sorry excuse for a school.

Decatur Middle School is one of the top 3 schools to watch for excellence in 2010 but because of current ISTEP guidelines our school is on probation in addition to 120+ schools. Can't wrap my head around this sanario. My child is in gold academy and is an honor student. She has the priviledge of the best teachers in the school. Kudos to her 7th grade Global Studies Teacher for thinking outside the box and her English teachers for challenging her.
